Akantharges Mbareki Trilobite 87mm

£792.00 GBP RRP £828.00 GBP

The Akantharges mbareki trilobite measures 87mm overall and dates to the Palaeozoic era, the middle Devonian, 395,000,000 million years ago. Originating from the fossil site, near Jorf, Tinejdad, Morocco, North Africa. An excellent Akantharges mbareki trilobite with extraordinarily large crab-like structured glabella spines outstretched away from the body which enabled the thoracic segments and spines to be cleaned of all the matrix (sedimentary limestone rock) and allow the carapace to be immensely visible.

Condition report: The thoracic segments well-detailed post the preparators lab work. The pygidium with its stout upwardly turned spines is complete; the whole carapace is superbly preserved and conserved.

The preparator is one of our associates and Moroccan team, the trilobite was personally hand-collected by our fossil digger and technician near Tinejdad and has been careful with the aid of the latest air abrasive techniques cleaned for display. We guarantee authenticity and quality with all our specimens this the little Akantharges mbareki arthropod trilobite is no exception to this guarantee. It requires many hours of patient concentration with a pneumatic pen to clean the overburden of matrix away from the specimen without damaging the trilobite. The rarity coupled with the technical skill required to extract and prepare elevates this specimen trilobite to the upper levels of examples.

The light brown bedrock on which the arthropod has lain for millions of years has been treated in a naturalistic way, etched around the trilobite, this highlights the specimens darker exoskeleton against the limestone block making a more dramatic display. The genus Akantharges mbareki, recently discovered has a detailed published paper by Corbacho and López- Soriano 2013 which documents the new genus, this was revised in 2014, a second similar genus type Basseiarges mellisha has been also documented.
